Elma’s newest cisco router installed on a rugged, conduction-cooled 3U VPX board

Elma Electronic now offers the NetKit-3110, based on the Cisco ESR6300 Ethernet router, designed for harsh, deployed industrial and military environments. With a total of six high-performance Gigabit Ethernet interfaces (2 routed, 4 switched), the 3U conduction-cooled (VITA 48.2) VPX router serves as an aggregation point for on-demand network connectivity in mobile or fixed deployments.

Mark Littlefield, director of system products for Elma Electronic, noted, “There has been a notable increase in data mobility demands across deployed military and industrial applications. No matter the harshness of the environment, our new rugged NetKit-3110 brings Cisco Mobile Ready Net capabilities to mobile and fixed IP based network routing needs to systems based on 3U VPX.”

From mobile ground operations, shipboard and air defense equipment, homeland security and emergency services to harsh industrial environments such as drilling and mining operations, the new 3U VPX-based NetKit-3110 enables enterprise-grade routing and switching security using the Cisco IOS XE software, ensuring highly secure voice, video, and data communication.

The NetKit-3110 efficiently manages network resources for increased performance. The included SD-WAN features enable unified distributed network management at the edge and an onboard hardware encryption module offloads packet encryption and decryption from the routing engine.

To ensure that the code running on the ESR6300 hardware platform is authentic, unmodified, and operating as intended, the NetKit-3110 includes an Onboard Trust Anchor module (TAm), along with image signing, Secure Boot, and runtime defenses.

The NetKit-3110 offers three throughput license tiers: 50 Mbps encrypted (Default); 250 Mbps encrypted (Performance); and 350 Mbps encrypted (Boost). The router weighs only 1 lb and meets MIL-STD-810H and RTCA DO-160G environmental specifications.
